Again, regardless of your lack of a tree, a puppy needs to have more peace and quiet than found at the holidays. Most would recommend you wait until after the new year to bring your pup home.

Please, PLEASE do NOT get your dog from a pet shop or a back yard breeders. Do some reading and check on some internet pug forums.

Good pug breeders do genetic testing on the ***** and sire, have the ***** and sire's hips X-rayed to get OFA ratings and also have their eyes checked. PLEASE do your homework. If a breeder isn't going to be there for you for the dog's ENTIRE LIFE run in the other direction. A good breeder will take back a dog at ANY time in its life.

Nope, he's as real as they come, and he's gotten even cuter! Here are some of his better pictures in his first 6 months as my little baby.

So far he's learned the following tricks/behaviors:
Stay (made it for 3 minutes in puppy school)
Come here
Lie Down
Stand up (to all fours)
Dance (standing his hind legs and resting his paws on me)
Military crawl
Leave it (he'll even leave a treat on his paws while lying down)
Go get your monkey (for his stuffed monkey)
Get gaga (for his giraffe)
Get the ball
Go get it (if I throw anything)
Drop it
Watch me
Take it
Pare (stop in Spanish, doesn't understand Stop in English)
Dame Cinco (hi-five in Spanish)
Sienta Te (Sit in Spanish)

Not bad for an 8-month old pug!

Look at the attachments below to see some more recent pictures of Sergeant Doakes (named after the "Dexter" character, a tough-guy, by-the-book cop)
